    If at first you don't succeed, open a bottle of wine.

    Great, I like to taste as I make but it definitely improves with keeping.

    Default Spanish Tomato Chutney

    This is one my mum recommends, haven't made it myself but probably will do now I have picked all the toms. Sorry it's in old money

    3lb green toms (skinned), 1 red pepper, 1lb onions, 2tbsps salt, 1 1/2 pints vinegar, 1tsp mixed spice, 1 tsp pepercorns, 1 tsp mustard seed, few chillis, 1 tsp cloves, 12 oz sugar.

    1 Slice toms and red pepper and chop onion finely.
    2 Sprinkle with salt and leave for several hours.
    3 Drain well.
    4 Put into a preserving pan with vinegar and spices tied in muslin.
    5 simmer steadily for 10 mins.
    6 Add the sugar and coninue simmering for 15-20 mins.
    7 Pour into jars and seal down.

    This is less soft than an ordinary chutney.

    I suppose you could leave the spices loose in the pan if you wanted but they will be a bit crunchy.

    Can someone please tell me what sort of vinegar I need to use; I still haven't actually made the chutney, but the toms have been in salt since yesterday, so guess what I'm doing this afternoon...

    Use cider or white/red wine vinegar Waffler - the colour is better and also the taste slightly less vinegary than the usual malt.
